Chatting with some clients in class this week, some people LOOVE pumpkin and some aren’t too crazy about it. I actually fall into the latter category. Pumpkin is a great substitute for oil to decrease fat in recipes. Use this recipe as is for a light pumpkin recipe that I really enjoy. Or try it with more pumpkin to replace the oil (see below for how that changes how to count it on the plan!) to pump up the pumpkin flavor!

In a food processor, combine coconut flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. Pulse in eggs, pumpkin, syrup, and oil until well combined. Transfer batter to an 8” square baking dish and bake at 350 for 20-30 min. Cool before serving. Makes 2 protein/fat/carb servings for Level 1. If you make at least 4 servings, fat is somewhat negligible. If you try to substitute pumpkin for the oil, this recipe counts as just 2 protein/carb servings with no fat and therefore better fits on food plan levels other than Level 1.
As October wraps up and we move into November, we’ll have just a couple more pumpkin recipes before we head into some more holiday-inspired options. Feast paleo, feast pumpkiny, and as always…FEAST ON!!!
